Jessica Cosmetics Holiday Gift Set, Swatches and Review

Press Sample
 
With the holidays around the corner, I have a few more collections to share with you. Today, I'm sharing the mini gift set which includes 5 ultra minis in a clear plastic tube. These are super minis, so I'm holding a bottle of their base coat to show them off. Let's get to the details.

Here is how the set looks. I've also included what the Phenom gift set looks like. I realized I didn't take a picture of it for my previous post. You can check out my review of Red Beryl HERE. It's so gorgeous!

I don't have any names for these polishes as there are none on the bottles. So I'm calling them by their color and finish. These polishes are 3.7ml minis, vs the standard 5ml minis.

Brown Shimmer: 4 coats. This is a lovely color, but I do think the ultra mini messes with the formula. I still had balding at three coats. But it's really a pretty brown. I love browns! I just wanted a better formula. I bet it's a two coater with a normal brush and a normal bottle.

Red Creme: 3 coats. VNL. As you saw in my Zoya post, reds hate my opaque free edge. This is a nice and squishy red and it's perfect for the holidays! Formula was nice.

Gold Glitter: 1 coat dabbed on my nails. This is one of those nice gradient glitters. You can easily use the brush to get the glitter on. I have seen swatches with this opaque, but my nails are longer and it was not happening. This is perfectly festive!

Blue Shimmer: 3 coats. This blue has a pretty violet and pink shimmer. Again, I bet it's two coats in a normal sized bottle. This is fun for snowy weather.

Purple Shimmer: 3 coats. It's the purple counterpart of above! There's purple, pink, and all sorts of pretty shimmer. It's really pretty.

This 5 piece set retails for $25. While I love the packaging and set up, that seems a little steep to me. These are micro minis at 3.7ml and $5 a piece is too high, in my opinion. I think this would be a great gift at $15, especially for younger children with smaller nail beds. These micro minis were just a pain for my long nails. I love the shimmers though, and need them in full size.
